Sailing Life Academy is based in Netsel Marina, Marmaris, Turkey

We are one of the leading RYA Sea schools in Turkey and the Mediterranean region and can take you on a sailing journey from beginner to advanced.

Between us we have years of experience teaching people to sail in a safe and fun environment.

We endeavour to provide the very best tuition, using high quality yachting equipment and the best RYA Instructors. Each course will have no more than 4 students to each instructor and all RYA courses will be taught in English.Our goal is simple, to give you a high quality yet relaxed learning experience that will allow you to achieve your chosen goals with confidence, and leave you wanting to return to sail with us again and again. 

Once you have mastered the art of being a skipper, you can continue to develop through our, racing experiences, bareboat charter, or through joining one of our flotillas.

I have the German Sportkustenschifferschein which is the Coastal Skipper equivalent and was looking for refreshing/advancing my practical skills in Marmaris. So I booked a Coastal Skipper course in August. Not only the whole communication with Lynn was great, the course with Alex as instructor was so valueable that I was able to take away so many practical tips - including stripping down and greasing winches! The course exceeded by far my expectations and it was so great having Alex as coach on board.

I just completed a one week day skipper course with Alex from Sailing Life Academy and I can't recommend it highly enough! Communication both before and during the course is excellent. Training took place on a 45 ft sailing boat which was in good conditions and very well equipped with sailing and training materials. Alex knows the area very well so always able to find a great spot to swim and have dinner at the end of the day depending on wind and busyness in one of the many beautiful bays around Marmaris. If you are planning to do a RYA course in Turkey I would highly recommend this centre!
